A block user button
A block butten or setting is need so users can block other users so that they can't interact with others or see their profiles
Viewers need to be able to block other viewers so they don't have to depend on the streamer/mods to protect them from abuse.

I agree, my partner followed a streamer and then followed them on Instagram, she was immediately told to send nudes so she stopped following him and blocked him on the other site, now he follows her favourite streamers and jumps in to the chat as soon as she starts watching which makes it uncomfortable and means she stops watching our favourite streamers.
How is this still not a thing? There are a ton of people that you may not want to interact with while on Mixer.
yes totally want to block certain users/moderators HiRezTaco for example
It should also have the option to ban the blocked user on the channel of the person doing the blocking.
My friend is getting bullied by 2 pepole and I'm standing up for him

I totally agree. I have a user Gear_Head_Skull who is stalking my son. I logged into my sons Mixer account here on the computer and successfully blocked him, yet when my son logs into his Xbox the user is not blocked. I can not find any kind of block option on the Xbox app for Mixer. Not being able to block opens up a whole can of worms for minors and just plain harassment. This user has nothing but minors on his Google plus profile. Was asking my son where he lived, what school he went to and even brought the school up on Google maps. He is a predator and Mixer needs to do something to allow users to block other users or they can and should be held liable to any harm coming from not having that function available.
I absolutely agree!
I totally support this option .. i am amazed this was not here from the start

I definitely vote on this for a pass. some people can be hateful no matter whose chat they are in, or harass you through whispers. It gets really annoying. This would be an amazing feature to add
I agree with this we should be able to block certain accounts/profiles of those that we feel need to be for various reasons

i agree we do need a block user option where there messages will not be displayed in any stream you both happen to be in.
To be honest i think this should have be added from day one..

It would be nice if that user was blocked from appearing in stream results as well.
block user (in my opinion) should block that user's chat messages in any channel from the the blocker and block IM's
blocking a profile should be a user-side setting (usually for disabled/inactive/dead channels) ie: user leaves beam and disables profile and all info is hidden to any other user, setting can be changed at any time
It would be useful to have a Block feature where messages from those users are not shown to you on any stream. This would be beneficial if a user finds someone's attitude, comments or username particularly offensive (without it breaking the site rules).
